Workplace Testing – Drug and Alcohol Facts

Why use drug and alcohol testing in the workplace?

Drug and alcohol testing is increasingly sought after by Australian workplaces. Employers want to be sure they are doing all they can to prevent alcohol and drug related accidents, injuries and harm. Employers have a duty of care to provide a safe workplace for people at their sites – employees, contractors and visitors.

Some facts about drugs and alcohol in the workplace:

What Employers Can Do

Not only do employers have a duty of care to keep their workers safe, they are also obligated under law to prevent accident or injury.

It is recommended workplaces have a Drug and Alcohol policy in place as this helps demonstrate an employer is serious about maintaining a safe workplace. ToxLogic’s policy experts can help develop and refine your Drug and Alcohol policy to make sure it is effective and relevant. They can also conduct staff education sessions to ensure everyone is on board with, and understands, the policy.

It is important to follow through with any workplace policy and a Drug and Alcohol policy is no different.  If the policy includes a drug testing regime, this should be followed – there is little point having such a policy unless it is complied with in practice. The Drug and Alcohol policy should be reviewed regularly and include periodic education sessions to ensure new employees are aware or the policy and longer term employees are kept up to date with any changes to the policy.
